...areas for a variety of geometric figures that include rectangle, square, parallelogram, triangle, trapezoid and circle. The only formula that someone really needs to remember to find area of any of the mentioned figures is:
Area = Base times Height
The area of a plane figure refers to the number of square units that figure covers. The area is measured in square units (e.g. cm2, meter2, km2, etc.).
Figure 1 shows a rectangle with base b and height h.
Figure 1: Rectangle
For finding area of a rectangle, first we will divide this in many smaller parts of a single square unit as shown by a shaded black region. Since, the length... CAP #3 This paper will develop and explain the ways to find areas...
